    Wow you know nothing about the hardware your trying (but failing HARD) to talk about. The Wii is BARELY 1.5 times faster than the Gamecube. Also the PS2 is nearly par with the Gamecube but has a totally different architecture.

    You should stop posting in hardware related topics untill you know shit from good chocolate and your asshole from a hole in the ground for your own sake please.

    1.5 are you serious man just cause power isn't the wii's focus does not mean it is a door stop of a console the wii and especially the GCN where capable of things the other consoles could not achieve

    I will admit that the GCN and PS2 had a vastly different architecture but even in comparisons between the same game on each console such as RE4 there is a noticeable difference between the quality of each one GCN version had noticeably better graphics, more enemies and also better sound quality

    Thanks Johno69

    Now since nintendo2600 believes the PS2 and GCN are nearly par perhaps this will help clear that illusion

    The PS2 did have certain good aspects about it such as the fact that it was almost based solely around bandwidth it's pretty much made for streaming in it's games. It was basically designed to process everything at the same time from both the DRAM and the disc. However it's complex architecture made it extremely difficult for developers to utilize it's full potential and the ones that could had to usually tone down their ideas because of the various bottlenecks encountered as a result of it's structure. this can be seen in the various multiplatform games such as RE4. It's support for bump mapping and anti aliasing by hardware was also not great, It had limited texture abilites, no texture compression, and it did not have TnL

    The Gamecube for it's size was a fairly powerful machine strong points are things like it's texture compression, it had Hardware based anti aliasing, hardware based bump mapping, its multi texturing abilities, It had a higher fill rate when it uses multiple textures, and it was a much easier platformfor developers to develope games for due to it's similarity to the OpenGL format, it also had faster load times due to it's mini dvd discs. However it also had some disadvantages such as has it's fixed TnL which restricted the creation of certain special effects

    here are some comparison screens between the Gamecube version of RE4 and the PS2 version as you can clearly see the GCN version is graphically superior in every way

    IM GOING TO CLEAR THIS UP FOR YOU ALL.

    THERE WILL NOT BE A PS2 EMULATOR THAT WORKS WELL ON THE WII FOR A WHILE.

    allow me to explain:
    while the wii is SLIGHTLY more powerful than the PS2, it still cannot run PS2 games at full speed, because emulators can only read and send data to the wiis GPU so fast. the smaller the game, such as a SNES game, the easier it is. The bigger the game, for example, a PS2 game, the thing is gonna go MAYBE half speed.

    Just play Wii games. They must be able to have more enemies than them all.

    Want to play a PS2 game, get a PS2.. they are cheap as these days.

    Fair enough if it was a console you can't get easily anymore.

    ok i agree that there will not be a PS2 emulator on the wii for awhile but i do disagree on the wii being SLIGHTLY more powerful than the PS2 it is at least 3 times more powerful than the PS2 and game size is not that much of a factor considering that PS2 games range from around 600mb to 4 gig and most PS1 games where around 600 mb with some reaching a gig or 1.5 gigs yet wiisx still runs at acceptable speeds it all depends on optimization of the emulator afterall you can have an emulator which is still in it's development such as wii64 which lags playing some N64 roms and then you can look at the XBOX n64 emulator which is pretty much perfect apart from a couple of bugs here and there.

    Does that mean then that the XBOX is more powerful than the wii no it doesn't and it isn't it just means that the XBOX n64 emulator has been optimized and refined over time. This is the key to a PS2 emulator time, optimization and refinement the wii is capable of emulating the PS2 on paper but it is these three things that are required to make that possible

    Why is this mentioned? Clearly the size of a game on a disk has very little relevance.

    I have one game that has 3 levels that took me 5 mins each. I have another with 200 levels that took me 5 mins each. Those games are different sizes for a reason, not because they need a better console to run.

    I think we have a PS2 hater here... not me, I think it's one of the best consoles ever. I was a Wii hater until I found this site. The amount of poo games that we have to sift through is rediculous on the Wii.

    i mentioned the size of the games in relation to ikesmasher's comment saying that the size of PS2 games would make it hard to emulate i was simply saying that size is not that much of a factor in it's emulation and no i am not a PS2 hater i have a PS2 and i still enjoy it very much it had some incredible games such as the Onimusha series especially number 3 and 2 and yes the wii does have a lot of less than spectacular games like dare i say wii music or the ridiculous amount of sports games that use your mii that however is due to the difficulty of developing multiplatform games on the wii.

    Wii versions usually are toned down graphically and the control sytem is either a hit or miss i pretty much stopped buying third party wii games because of this instead i now buy mainly first party wii titles and the occasional third party game only after renting and testing the game to be sure it is ok

    and also why on disk wouldn't it be better to use a hard drive to store all your ISO's if a PS2 emulator was created

    He was referring to the processing power required to run the PS2 games, not the size on the disk.

    I lol @ the Wii toning down their graphics. I think this is because the Wii isn't as "far superior" as you seem to think it is to the PS2.

    My favourite console for arcade type gaming is by far the PS3, shooters I think it's hard to beat a PC. But I have a family with 3 young children who are more into platform games like anything mario. This is why the Wii suits us.

    I think the Wii isn't all that better in terms of power to play game as the PS2. But it has new concepts that keep it where it is. And for me, USB loading has put it where it is .

    All that said and done, the Wii not being as dominant over the PS2 in terms of processing etc.. it's highly unlikely an emulator of any quality will ever be available with the current specs of each console.
